"This well developed course and experienced instructors means our current 1st time pass rate is 100% and nearly all courses complete in the 30 hour minimum."  Peter Shorter CFI

The Flight Instructor Course (Flying Instructors course) consists of 30 hours of dual training. It covers the complete PPL syllabus and teaches you how to instruct across the length and breadth of the PPL Course. There is also instruction in how to give Pre Flight Briefings and Long Briefings for the PPL Course. Once completed you will face a long day's scrutiny at the hands of a Flight Instructor Examiner (FIE) who will test your instructional technique in both the classroom and in the cockpit. 


The current course price is £9,800 including 30 hours flight training in a C152, all landings, ground school and VAT.  The course can also be conducted in a PA28 (with the C152 used for spin training) call for prices and details.  Extras required are the pre-course test, aircraft hire for the test, examiner fees and CAA issue fees.
